15 Cashier Questions and Answers:

1 :: What is the different revenue expenditure and its treatment in accounts?

The nature of some expenses is such that though they do not create an asset
but their benefit is spread over more than one accounting period.

These are mostly non-recurring and large in amount.

In such circumstances instead of debiting the entire amount of these expenses
to Profit and Loss of the year, it may be spread over a number of years with a
proportionate amount being charged each year to P&L Account.

The portion that is still not charged to Profit and Loss is shown in the
balance sheet on the asset side after Capital Work in Progress and is called
Deferred Expenditure.

Examples are Expenses incurred to start a business, Initial marketing cost to
launch a product etc.

VAT (Value Added Tax): It is value added Tax. means total value which is added in goods price as a profit , on that value, the tax is paid is called VAT.

we can see it with example:

goods Purchase= 20000
Input Tax @ 4 % = 20000*4%= 800

now we sold this goods

Sale = 35000
Out put tax @ 4 % = 35000*4% = 1400

When we purchased Goods the saler collect a tax value from us as a sales tax. then we sold goods. we charge a tax amount in invoice. finally wen we pay tax to govt.

then total value of tax payble will be : Out put tax - Input Tax= 1400-800 = 600.

So Nett Tax payable Amount Is Rs. 600. this amount is a part of total value added in sales price not that sales price.

we can see it : Total Value add: Sales - Purchase = 35000-20000= 15000.

and tax amount on value added:15000*4 % = 600.

it has been proved that VAt Is an value added Tax.

Or opening Benami demat account, purchasing shares and transferring them in your legitimate demat account etc.
